Sunfish Get Well Card
Here is a card I made to send to my husbands Uncle Frank who is currently in the hospital. I have had this stamp forever and have never used it. I was always afraid to tackle the coloring. I used my pencils to color, then I used linen colored distress ink all over it to tone down a little of the brightness. I put stickles just on the fish. I tried out the "Pixie" sewing machine to do the stitching. I need more practice for sure. I am not sure I like this machine yet. I need to do some more stitching. I am a seamstress but am not too happy with the results on this project. Thanks for letting me share.
Paper: Card stock and DP from Blossoms and Posies Stack
Ink: Black and Linen Distress Ink
Accessories: Ribbon, Spellbinders label die, Pixie Sewing Machine, Star brads
